What are the minimum requirements in "Autobuild" and get [OK] in AUTOMATED when docker search?


What are the minimum requirements in “Automated builds” to get an “[OK]” status in the “AUTOMATED” section of the docker search results?


I read the docs above to automate the building and the results at the Docker Hub’s repo gave me “SUCCESS”. Though, I’m having trouble getting the “AUTOMATED” as “[OK]” in docker search results.

To isolate the problem I made a simple hello-world repo but I still can’t get the “[OK]”.

The “Autobuild” is enabled in it’s “Configure Automated Builds” settings. And when pushed to the GitHub repo, the automated build of DockerHub runs and gives me success. So the “Autobuild” seems to be working but doesn’t take effect on docker search results.

Here’s the step that I took:

  • Create a sample repo on GitHub. (
  • Create a simple shell script which only echoes “Hello Docker Hub!”. (src/
  • Create a simple shell script to test the above script. (src/
  • Create a Dockerfile with health check of the above test.
  • Do docker build . and run locally to see if it works -> OK
  • Create a test file for Docker Hub. (/docker-compose.test.yml)
  • Create a repo on Docker Hub and link it to GitHub’s repo above.
  • Edit something and git push origin then the repo in reacts to build.
  • Wait until the “Build Status” becomes “SUCCESS”.
  • Check if the test was running during the build -> OK
  • Pull the built image from docker cloud and run locally -> OK
  • Do docker search <myname>/<myrepo> -> NG (No [OK] in AUTOMATED)

The “Configure Automated Builds” settings are below:

Build configurations

  • SOURCE REPOSITORY: KEINOS/hello_dockerhub @ GitHub
  • BUILD LOCATION: Build on Docker Hub's infrastructure
  • AUTOTEST: Internal Pull Requests
  • REPOSITORY LINKS: Enable for Base Image
